    • On February 17, 2012, by Oldentimes - I guarantee you, if the U.S. deported all the illegals they caught, secured the borders and eventually there were only a few, you can bet your bottom dollar companies who exploit these people would find other ways to fill those positions. Such as lobbing congress for tax incentives to employ school kids, older people and the like. Rather than Uncle Sam sending out so many unemployment checks, give incentives to companies who push to and hire the unemployed. You can bet fast food, packing companies and produce growers can be very inventive if they had to. It would be a win win for all, even the illegal, they then can go home and make their country better. We could employ many more citizens and save us a boat load of money. Like $350,000,000,000 to $400 billion shelled out per year. Thats 7 to 8 Trillion, Yea thats an 8 with 12 zeros $8,000,000,000,000 in 20 years for people who aren't even suppose to be here. Humm, wonder what could we do with that kind on money? Pay off the DEBT?

    • On February 17, 2012, by Oldentimes - This bill would not split families. It would keep more of them together as they could all be deported at the same time and thus stay together in their own country as they would have been in the first place. Our laws don’t split families, those who break them do!
